I don't really think so. That mutex_initialized is a globally static variable, not a thread local one. Thread interruption between testing mutex_initialized and setting it is very unlikely and still wouldn't do much harm if it actually does happen.

Very unlikely is not a good argument. And you haven't considered multiprocessor systems. They aren't that rare: all newer Pentium 4 systems have two logical cores.
The harm would be a failed connection attempt - I don't think that this is acceptable.

Hmm. Is libpq a .DLL? Then you could initialize the mutex in DllMain(). Otherwise create a C++ class with one instance and a constructor. Then initialize the mutex from the constructor.
